Green Tea is a mine full of antioxidants. These antioxidants are helpful in improving the immune system. It contains bioactive compounds which improve health and brain functions. The addition of ginger into it increases metabolism. Similarly, Black tea contains Vitamin C to support the immune system in fighting off the cold. It also helps in soothing a sore throat and chase away the chills.

2) Proper Sleep

When we don’t get enough sleep, antibodies and cells are reduced to their minimum capacity. During a long period of sleep, the body releases Cytokines. It is a type of protein which regulates the immune system to fight infections. By having a proper sleep of 7-8 hours, we can avoid the risk of flu.
